GPU Dock with laptop

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello guys,

 

I currently own a Asus ROG GL552VW-CN470T i7 6700GQ, with comes with an 960m and usb c. 

However the gpu is a bit too weak for some games, so i want to connect my laptop to a gpu dock so i can play on my laptop with a real desktop GPU. 

I found some thing online, but I dont know if this will work? So maybe you want to take a look at it, I would appriaciate it.

 

So I want to use this dock: http://eud.dx.com/product/exp-gdc-laptop-external-independent-video-card-dock-with-pci-e-interface-black-844404635#.V02RGpGLSUl

 

But instead of using de Mini PCI-E with comes with the GPU dock, i want to use the usb c port with comes with my laptop.

 

Then I want to buy an usb c to hdmi adapter, something like this: https://www.startech.com/AV/usb-c-video-adapters/usb-c-hdmi-adapter~CDP2HD

 

An then I want to connect the adapter and the dock with just a normal HDMI cable.

 

 

So? Will this work or not?

 

Cheers,

Jochem

That wont work

 

You need to use mini pci-e for it to work

 

You cannot connect a GPU to a laptop over HDMI, only a GPU to a display 

 

and your USB C port is not necessarily a thunderbolt port for a thunderbolt GPU enclosure either
